trying to mount cd burner, cd burner being a whore


I'm trying to mount my cd burner with mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom1
and I get mount:

wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd,
or too many mounted file systems
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)

I opened the /etc/fstab and changed /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 defaults,noauto,ro 0 0 to /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 defaults,noauto,ro 0 0 then tried mount -t 9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom1 and got the following:

mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr0,
or too many mounted file systems

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I'm sure someone else does if they could give me a hand I'd really appreciate it.

if using SCSI emulation, try /dev/scd0

what kind of cd is in the burner when you are trying to mount it? If it is a blank, you cannot mount it.

see if /dev/cdrom points to your correct cdrom location.

Look in /etc/lilo.conf for a line 'append=hd?=ide-scsi' to see if you are using scsi emulation. If not, then your cdrom will not be /dev/sr0, but /dev/hd?

It turns out that I was trying to mount an audio cd that linux must not have liked I can't believe I didn't think to check that. Thanks for the help.

For your future reference, you can't mount an audio cd, period

Doesn't matter if linux likes it or not
